Post Date: 2015-04-05 17:11:40 by Chuck_Wagon
Okay. I got two packages of cream cheese. I tried - unsuccessfully - to get sugar free chocolate graham cracker crumbs. So I got Voortman chocolate cookies instead. Got sugar substitutes - no problem there. What I'm gonna do is make a two-layer thing in a spring pan. Bottom layer crust will be mixed with softened butter. That gets lightly baked - till crunchy. On top of that will do half of the cream cheese mixture. This is where I need help. Mid sequence interrupt - Just so we all know what we are doing - Baked chocolate cookie crumb crust on the bottom - Then layer one of the cream cheese mix - Then more (unbaked) chocolate cookie crumbs Then layer Two of the cream cheese mix ...

Shelf Life of Your Food Storage Program
Post Date: 2015-02-24 22:10:45 by Pridie.Nones
Lots of good things from posters about their survival skills concernng "tips" for methods of stalwart strength. I am particulary impressed that one poster drags a cart load of 50,000 primers all over the forum to prove his skills is one known example. This thread is not about bs, however. This thread is about how to store your dried food and grains in a reasonable way so that you are seriously prepared for a disaster. One of the best approaches to food storage is to lower the temperature and ensure extraction of moisture/water + any oxygen content from food packages you intend to within; to ensure adequate capability of over 40 years storage life. As an example, assuming you ...

All Over America, Government Officials Are Cracking Down On Preppers
Post Date: 2015-01-10 16:03:03 by A K A Stone
Why would the government want to punish people that are just trying to work hard, become more self-sufficient and take care of their families? There are approximately 3 million preppers in the United States today, and often they appear to be singled out for punishment by bureaucratic control freaks that are horrified at the thought that there are families out there that actually want to try to become less dependent on the system. So if you use alternative methods to heat your home, or if you are not connected to the utility grid, or if you collect rainwater on your property, or if you believe that parents should have the ultimate say when it comes to health decisions for their children, you ...

Post Date: 2014-11-22 20:17:27 by Hondo68
Georgia Man Shoots and Kills Driver Who Mistakenly Pulled Into His Driveway . . . Allowed To Plead To A Single Misdemeanor With No Jail Time and A $500 Fine There is a surprising plea deal in Georgia this week where Philip Sailors, 69, (left) was accused of responding to Rodrigo Diaz (right) pulling into his driveway by mistake by shooting him in the head and killing him. Sailors has now been allowed to plead out on a single misdemeanor for involuntary manslaughter with no jail time. He was facing a murder charge. Under the plea bargain, Sailors will serve 12-months probation and pay a $500 fine. What is equally striking is that Sailors declined to say a word of apology to the ...

So what do you do if you find yourself in this situation? News 4s Sharon Reed sat down with two security experts who shared their 60 years experience. Its important to remember to: *Remain calm.

Rand Paul challenges MSNBC guy (hack & hater) to a duel
Post Date: 2013-11-03 16:43:04 by Hondo68
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) fired back Sunday against accusations that he plagiarized portions of his speeches from Wikipedia articles, musing "if dueling were legal in Kentucky" he could "challenge" the charges. Last week, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow pointed out that parts of a speech Paul gave in support of Ken Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate for Virginia governor, had been lifted from the Wikipedia page for the film "Gattaca." BuzzFeed also found that another set of Paul remarks had borrowed from the Wikipedia entry for "Stand and Deliver." In an appearance on ABC's "This Week," Paul dismissed the claims. "Yes, there are times ...

When two white newspaper reporters for the Virginian-Pilot were driving through Norfolk, and were set upon and beaten by a mob of young blacks beaten so badly that they had to take a week off from work that might sound like news that should have been reported, at least by their own newspaper. But it wasnt.The OReilly Factor on Fox News Channel was the first major television program to report this incident. Yet this story is not just a Norfolk story, either in what happened or in how the media and the authorities have tried to sweep it under the rug.Similar episodes of unprovoked violence by young black gangs against white people chosen at random on beaches, in ...

How to hold Washington accountable using the Racketeer Influence & Corrupt Organizations Act

Has the U.S. government deprived you of your rights? If so, please do not think that you are helpless or at the mercy of the political justice system anymore. You have legal remedies to pursue. Its RICO time. Last week I told you that if you were looking for a political judicial solution, such as congress, the Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), impeachment or a special prosecutor, to hold the corruption coming out the Obama administration accountable, including from the Internal Revenue Services (IRS) and National Security Agency (NSA) for abusively targeting and harassing specific Americans, Christians and journalists, you were looking in the wrong ...

THE RECON MISSION
Post Date: 2013-01-03 17:24:42 by Capitalist Eric
We were based at Hue, inside the Imperial City citadel and the airstrip. Our Special Forces compound is there. The mission; Vietnamese Army Special Forces G-2 had told my unit of a large Communist camp next to the Laotian border and they wanted to know everything about it. The commanders tell us they believe there are maybe two or three hundred heavy transfer trucks there. We know that there may have been other teams there before this, because someone found out for us exactly how the communists in there were dressed. Sometimes for a recon like this, our commanders will send in three, four or more teams in over a month to checking everything out very carefully, but the communists must ...

NRA: 'The Only Thing That Stops a Bad Guy with a Gun Is a Good Guy with a Gun' by AWR Hawkins 21 Dec 2012 After remaining silent on the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting for a week, in order to show respect to victims and families of victims of that terrible crime, the NRA broke its silence today. NRA Executive Director Wayne LaPierre began his comments thus: "The National Rifle Association's 4 million mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters join the nation in horror, outrage, grief, and earnest prayer for the families of Newtown, Connecticut." He then took off the gloves and pointed out the sheer hypocrisy of the mainstream media and the Democrat Party ...
WHAT GOOD IS A HANDGUN AGAINST AN ARMY
Post Date: 2012-12-03 19:53:33 by A K A Stone
A friend of mine recently forwarded me a question a friend of his had posed: "If/when our Federal Government comes to pilfer, pillage, plunder our property and destroy our lives, what good can a handgun do against an army with advanced weaponry, tanks, missiles, planes, or whatever else they might have at their disposal to achieve their nefarious goals? (I'm not being facetious: I accept the possibility that what happened in Germany, or similar, could happen here; I'm just not sure that the potential good from an armed citizenry in such a situation outweighs the day-to-day problems caused by masses of idiots who own guns.)" If I may, I'd like to try to answer that ...
